During the next few weeks, my students will begin transforming their WordPress site into a unique creation. At first, they will learn how to establish a site theme, edit their “sample” page and convert it to an “about” page, create new web pages, manage their navigational bar, create permalinks, get their blog started, customize authorship of their blog, work with widgets, add images to their website, and create hyperlinks to images and text. Later in the course, students will explore various plug-ins for search engine optimization and site analytics, change their site theme to reflect their individual personalities, add blog posts, enable social media sharing, engage in paid search to drive traffic to their site, and much more.
I am very excited to help my students hone their technological skills. Below is a listing of my spring 2013 students and their URLs.
